    So it's mirror lockup, curtain open, curtain close then mirror down.

    But in normal one-shot mode can still use MLU rite?

    I only experience mirror vibration in 2 instances,
    1) Astrophotography.
    2) For handheld shots with VR lens at shutter speed around 1/4s to 2s. The hand will try to counter the mirror slap and correct, at the same time, the VR will try to counter the that movement also and blurs the image instead. I think it might be due to the way I shoot, so sometimes, I get a better picture with the VR off at that kind of shutter speed.

    Otherwise, mirror vibrations doesn't bother me at all.
    The EOS 30 manual got explain about the mirror lockup thingy but don't really understand. So if i'm using cable release i press the button and the mirror lockup and then press again to open the shutter curtains? If in this case then is it the reverse to close?

    After the exposure, the mirror returns.

    Yeah.. it makes sense that way. The purpose of bringing the mirror up first is to prevent vibration during the exposure. After the exposure, the mirror can return without interfering with anything even if it vibrates.
